My name is Katie Dodge and I am delighted to be teaching at Johnson this year. Previously, I have taught 2nd, 3rd,  4th and 6th grades at Hoover, Cooper, Coolidge, and Webster schools.  In these different grade levels I have also taught all subjects. I spent four years teaching 5th and 6th grade at Riley and Johnson Upper Elementary schools in one of the Center classes. In 2013, I became the Elementary Special Education Teacher Consultant for the district. 

In my capacity as a teacher consultant, I work with all of the k-6 buildings. Additionally, I provide services to our homebound, physically impaired, and hearing impaired students.

n my spare time, I perform plays with Parlour Theatre. We perform our shows at assisted living/nursing homes.  I am a member of the Alumni Advisory Council at Madonna University and help with different events on campus and around town. I am also a member of the Lions Club and Friends of Rouge.


I enjoy traveling as much as I can too. I try to visit my brother, who lives in Florida, at least twice a year. I love going up north for the weekend too. This summer I went on a picturesque vacation to Maine. It was a dream come true!  I also enjoy skiing, yoga, nature, reading, watching movies, and gardening. Lastly, I LOVE to eat!
